This map allowed the pilot to properly calculate his flight path. It is made heavy paper.
Made of heavy paper, this map is in VERY NICE used condition. It measures a approx. 3.5 feet x 4 feet in size, and covers all of the Germany. Also includes parts of Poland, Hungary, Sweden, Denmark, and France, Switzerland, and Austria. It features 2 black printed Luftwaffe Eagles on the top, and shows various locations of lakes, seas, towns, villages, cities, railways, and elevations. Also features longitude and latitude degree markings. This one indicates, “Herausgegeben vom REICHS-LUFTFAHRT-MINISTERIUM Berlin 1936”, (Published by the Air Ministry Berlin 1936). There are some slight tears (see photos), and wear in some areas due to use and age. Features a NICE ink stamp, indicating it originally belonged to Flugzeugführerschule C 3 (FFS C3). That dates it between 1940 and 1943. A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or simply as a conversation piece!

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
